An edge in need of sharpening. Released almost half a year after the original S6 Edge, the S6 Edge+ brings a larger display and... unfortunately not much else. How does the new Edge compare against the Galaxy Note 5 and its siblings?

The Galaxy S7 edge and the Galaxy S6 edge+ are impressive showcases of Samsung's technological proficiency, displaying quality design and containing some of the best mobile hardware money can buy in 2016. Without question, both devices have the style and the guts to defend Samsung's enviable smartphone market share for another year.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is an undeniably impressive phone. It's got some of the best-performing hardware on the market, a great camera, and it's gorgeous to look at. The problem is, all that lovely will cost you the better part of £1,000 - a high premium for a device that's essentially identical to one launched earlier in the year.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ review – big, powerful and sleek
Source: Laptop Media English
Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ met all of our expectations, despite the lack of microSD memory card slot and waterproof certificate, which were both present in last year’s Galaxy flagship. The phone’s capabilities grant a spot among the top models currently on the market. The first thing that makes an impression is the curved on both sides display, which is both attractive and delivers tons of features. The SoC of the device, Exynos 7420, provides more graphic and computing performance than you may need. Apparently it is power-efficient enough, because we’re more than satisfied from the phone’s battery life, since it got good results in our battery tests, despite the 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen. Speaking of, it has all the properties a top-tier smartphone should have. Furthermore, the outer temperatures of the device remain low even after heavy load, meaning the device will be pleasant to touch regardless of the duration of usage.

A close call in this phablet battle
Source: Tech Advisor English
Our comparisons are written to help you decide which to buy rather than declare one an outright winner. In this comparison, it's clear that the Nexus 6P is better value with 128GB on offer for less than the 32GB Edge+ and with no Micro-SD card slot this is a big deal. It also has an 8Mp front camera, USB Type-C and the latest Android. However, Samsung's phone is arguably more stylish, is more manageable, has a better rear camera and has wireless charging.

Simply put, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ is a larger version of the Galaxy S6 edge. It has more RAM but you lose the 128GB storage option. The larger screen definitely gives it more oomph but the resolution stays the same. Battery life is improved but not considerably. If you liked the original s6 edge, the edge+ is, arguably, a better version of it.

Samsung has delivered a good phone for those who were on the fence regarding buying the Galaxy S6 Edge, because they wanted a phone with larger display. The hardware innovation is the only USP of the phone which makes it stand apart. While the dual-curved edge display looks good, there is limited utility as we have already elaborated in the review. Unlike the Galaxy Note Edge, which could let you launch apps from the edge display, the one on the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will only give you information stream.

Since the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is based so closely on the Galaxy S6 Edge, it's little wonder that the phablet version is such a solid high-end device. That said, besides the new app and contact shortcuts, it still feels like Samsung is struggling to come up with ideas to justify the expense of the curved screen, good-looking though it is.

Funny, the iPhone 6s Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ are probably two of the best phones to get right now. Two amazing pieces of technology but pretty much incapable of changing anyone's mind. Both devices are really trying: Samsung is no longer putting function before aesthetics and has given up traditional advantages such as memory expansion and a removable battery. Apple too has broken a long-standing taboo - large screens.

Finally, on the 4K video test the iPhone 6s Plus is in disadvantage as it has a forced software stabilization all the time and thus it has a narrower field of view. The Galaxy's video has more detail while still capturing more objects in the frame, which made if a favorite among 81% of our readers.

The Galaxy Note5 is a bit of a break in form for Samsung, but in some ways it represents a return to form. To understand what this means, we can look at the various aspects that make up the Galaxy Note5 in contrast to the Galaxy S6. One of the easier places to start is the design, which shares a great deal in common with the Galaxy S6.

I’ve grown used to having a microSD card which has my stuff on. There’s nothing I don’t want on that microSD. Just my stuff. Here though, a sizable chunk of storage is removed thanks to pre-installed apps that I may not necessarily want. Sure, the Microsoft apps are good and it’s understandable on a phablet like this, but I should be the one making the decision, and although 100GB is available online it’s my local storage that I’d like to take charge of.

Is it a Note 5 replacement in the territories that are being given this instead of the S-Pen enabled model? Not really... the stylus does add something to the mix, where the S6 Edge+ is a just a big version of a normal phone, which doesn't seem that exciting. If you looked at the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and found it to be too small, this is the perfect phone for you. Otherwise, I'd just stick with the smaller version, as it's cheaper and does largely the same job. The S6 Edge+ is good, but not a great standalone phablet.

80% Tweaking the Winning Formula
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is not a bad phone by any means but it really isn't the smartest buy at its current price of Rs 55,500. If you must have a curved-screen phone, we recommend the Galaxy S6 Edge over its newer sibling. You can spend the same amount of money and get the 64GB version with plenty of change left over for a wireless charging dock and a smart cover. If you just enjoy having the latest and greatest toy to show off, then the Galaxy Note 5 is a more sensible choice. It's less expensive and features an S Pen stylus, which enables a lot more useful functions than this phone's curved screen.

No two ways about it, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a fantastic piece of smartphone hardware, and I love it. Just like the S6 Edge Plus, it’s impossibly pretty, a phone with curves for the sake of them (ignore the practical “benefits” – they’re negligible) It’s a phone that you buy to show off, not because it has a microSD expansion slot or a removable battery.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ vs LG G4
Source: Phone Arena English
Our review must have made the following things pretty clear by now. Both the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the LG G4 have very good designs, but whereas the former is purely a showpiece, the latter is more practical with its removable battery and microSD card slot. The display on the Samsung phablet has a more natural look with its color accuracy, but LG's doesn't look bad either. And still, both are bragging material with their excellent minimum and maximum brightness levels. Also, the S6 edge+ and the G4 boast mature, streamlined user interfaces that have been set on path of improvement, with both having plenty of potential to get even better.

It’s hard to give a universal recommendation on the Galaxy S6 edge+. After all, the size will scare away many right off the bat, and the remaining will have to decide how much they truly value the edge display. The Galaxy S6 edge+ is a terrific phone — one of the best out there, but especially when taking into consideration the Galaxy Note 5, with nearly identical specifications and the much more useful S Pen, not many would argue that the edge+ is the practical choice, and even fewer will be so confident in that assertion as to shell out the extra cash for one. But that doesn’t mean nobody should buy one.

The edge of reason
Source: Pocket Lint English
As the big brother to the already excellent S6 edge, the edge+ gets off to a flying start, showing off visual design flair like no other. But in this larger form we're a little less convinced by the screen curves, due to vignetting and reflections from its glossy exterior. The lack of microSD will continue to frustrate too, especially when considering the 64GB model's eye-watering £829 price tag. And, yes, those curved edges might be pushing the edge of reason, but by pushing beyond the traditional design bounds the edge+ is a show-off phone on a grand scale.

The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is one of the most expensive smartphones you can buy, and it's a full $100 more than the regular S6 Edge. Is jumping from 5.1 inches to 5.7 inches worth it? If you crave a bigger canvas for watching videos, surfing the Web, playing games and other activities, the answer is yes. When you break the payments down into monthly installments, you’re talking about an extra 4 bucks per month.

With its top class performance and superb camera, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ rightly deserves its title as the best Android phablet since the Note 4. However, when its specs are nigh-on identical to the regular S6 Edge, it can't help but feel like a rather lazy update, especially when it costs so much more for what essentially boils down to a difference of 0.5in. In this sense, it falls into the same trap as the Sony Xperia Z3+, as it simply doesn't do enough to make it stand out from the rest of the S6 family or bring anything new to the table to justify its eye-watering price.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ review: Beauty and power
Source: Gizmag English
Our best advice is to play around with the Note 5 in a store. If you think you'll use the S Pen at all, then go with the Note. If you have no interest in a stylus, and don't mind throwing down an extra $75, go with the better-looking, lighter and thinner S6 edge+. No matter which way you go, though, you're getting a flipping outstanding smartphone. Big, beautiful, powerful and premium.

It’s hard to get used to the crazy pace of innovation in the mobile space with so many new devices, but comparing the Galaxy S6 edge+ with the nearly year-old Nexus 6, the pace of innovation can be clearly felt.

No, we’re talking about overall design and performance: the S6 edge+ has a much faster and consistently great camera, a significantly better, brighter and more power efficient AMOLED display, neat wireless charging option, a hugely improved thin and stylish design, a fast and reliable fingerprint scanner with the option for future use with Samsung Pay, and the list just goes on.

Personally, I think the biggest competition comes from within Samsung's own house. The Galaxy Note 5 may not have the fancy curves, but it does get the excellent S Pen, more flexible software, and a slightly smaller price. Your decision, then, comes down to the respective values you place on design versus usability: I love how Samsung pushes the envelope in hardware, but I can't help but wish the company had a better idea of what to actually do with it.

Rather than going into detail about their pricing, we’ll just generalize it by saying that the Galaxy S6 edge+ carries a higher premium than the Note5. There might not be a huge disparity when breaking down their pricing on a fixed, monthly financing plan, but it’s undeniably profound when we look at their outright costs. In fact, the Galaxy S6 edge+, depending on which carrier you buy it from, is normally accompanied with an $80 increase over the Note5. Again, it’ll be different for each carrier, but that’s the cost we’re roughly looking at here.

That is provided you can handle the bigger screen and the omission of an infrared port, which we think most people will be able to deal with. Ultimately, if the S6 Edge is something you’re considering, we’d look past it to the bigger phone, because it improves the regular-sized version in some pretty solid ways. Sure, it’s not perfect, and is close to being just an enlarged edition of the device that is changing the way Samsung designs phones, but it manages to work a little better thanks to some extended tweaking.

At £700 the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a seriously expensive phone, and we were happy enough with the size of the regular model. If you do want a larger version then great and the increased memory and bigger battery are nice upgrades. However, the IR blaster is gone and the functionality of the edge screen is still gimmicky. Check back for a final verdict soon.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus review: is bigger always better?
Source: T3 English
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is nothing more than a bigger version of the original Edge, but with a larger screen, better battery and some little tweaks on top to make it seem like the more 'premium' choice - although the price will also see to that.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ Review
Source: Ubergizmo English English
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ takes everything that made the success of the Galaxy S6 Edge, and made it bigger. If you like large-display phones, you know that increasing the display real estate already improves the user experience significantly. That’s especially true when the screen has a very high quality.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ hands-on
Source: GSM Arena English
When we said Samsung rushed the launch of the Galaxy Note5, you may have thought it was somehow unfinished. It certainly doesn't appear to be so at this point, instead it's the carefully thought out upgrade we're used to seeing from Samsung. Sure, it has lost a few of its productivity features, and we'll be hearing a lot about its battery. The comments section was barely beginning to accept that it won't be user-replaceable, as the rumored 4,100mAh capacity was enough to shake battery anxiety away. The actual capacity is nowhere nearly as impressive and the 3,000mAh number is less than even the Note II.

There are 4 colors to choose from; black sapphire, gold platinum, silver titan and white pearl.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
